    What's with the heaters in this country?

    I've stayed in several B&B's and hotels so far and not one has a working heater in the room. Maybe they used to work? The towel warmers also seem to be there for decoration...

    I arrived a day early for my reservation and the staff was gracious enough to find me accommodation. I had to take a double room, so it cost me more, but it was worth it to have a spot. The room is clean and there is hand soap! Another thing that seems to be missing from the other places I've stayed. The shower ran hot, lukewarm, bordering on cold, then lukewarm. The staff is very friendly.

    ... and marvelling at the beauty we could not take enough pictures of, I realized that pictures would never do the landscape justice. There is magic in this place that could never be captured on film (try as I might). It would be like showing you a raindrop and asking you to imagine the ocean. That being said, iF I am hit at some ...

    ... giving us both a fright and we laughed till we cried.

    We took a forest walk to a shelter looking out over the loch to where there are seals. That was cool even though they were a fair distance away. We didn't find the castle ruin we were looking for but it was a pleasant drive ending in Fort William for lunch. I drove us back.

    Going a mile or so up the road for dinner tonight.

    LATER....great meal at Laroch and a good walk afterwards.

    ... for Ben Nevis.

    I think I was feeling pretty beat from the week of trekking. Although I had planned an early start it was after 9:00 before I headed out in the direction of the mountain. At least there’s not the same issue of regular afternoon thunderstorms in the Scottish Highlands as there is in Colorado. I’m sure I saw a bus pass me as I was on the home stretch towards Fort William the day before in Glen Nevis, but the ...

    ... no roof so we grinned and bared the wetness to and explored. A dip in the lawn right around the castle showed us an area that was a moat, and I discovered more evidence of a Campbell takeover. The castle wasn't as rich as the abandoned Castle Toward but held a rich history and was much more cared for. On to the whiskey factory, where we learnt about how it is made, the barrels tainted in bourbon ...
